Sean Kennedy is a brilliant writer, this series is great, I love Simon and Dec and so looked forward to this book. It was well worth the wait! The author writes believable stories about people you would really like to call friends. There is sadness and anxiety caused by a health scare but, as in all of the books in this series, love, humour, and support of amazing friends and family carry them through. However, there's still lots of fun with funny, sarcastic Simon and company. Sean Kennedy's excellent writing ensures that the reader is fully engaged with all the characters and the story. Over the years we have shared the growth and development of Simon and Dec's wonderful relationship and those of their friends and I for one can't wait for the next book.
Why is it hat when you eagerly await another novel in your favourite series you have to bloody work?
Well, never fear that, for despite work and lack of sleep, I manage to power through this latest instalment in the Tigers and Devils series.
From the first opening pages, it’s like Simon and Declan never have been away. They are still loveable and imperfect, but yet as characters they are themselves but yet also continue to grow. Simon is especially good at this- we’ve all come to love him as a unique and quirky character who has insecurities- in this outing we get a better insight into his quirks and my heart breaks for him as we get even more insight.
Normally, my pet hate with authors is how they seem to make the characters suffer (especially in the gay romance genre). However I can’t hate Sean Kennedy- his writing is superb and on point as per normal, with the storyline very organic and not forced- in fact my heart broke and if you’re feeling such a strong emotion, the author has done well.
I really hope there’s another novel in this series; I really love it and the fact Kennedy is a superb Australian author is just icing on the cake.
